1964 KKK murders big tourist draw
CNN |
"Forty years after three civil rights activists were executed by the Ku Klux Klan, tourism officials are documenting their demise in hopes of retelling history and drawing visitors to the town where their killers were once protected. A black history brochure that documents the final hours of Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney is aimed at bringing needed tourist dollars to this largely rural area northeast of Jackson. Most of the 5,000 brochures printed just two weeks ago by the Philadelphia tourism bureau have already been grabbed up as this weekend's anniversary of the June 21 slaying draws near."
